Not your usual aura
I have been reading your site and I'm so glad I found it. I have chronic migraines with 18-22 migraines a month. I've tried many prophylactic (medicinal) as well as herbal remedies that haven't worked. I take abortive medications (triptans) and if I catch it in time I'm usually safe; otherwise, it only gets worse.
I don't have the visual aura that is described in this web page, but I do have an emphatic warning that a migraine is imminent. My "aura" is sensitivity to noise. I also get very irritable and I snap at people for no reason. It's taken me many years to realize the warnings, but I'm glad I did. I'm lucky my husband is aware of what is happening and takes no offense.
Do others experience this warning?
